Can MS be used with 2-stroke engines? I'm thinking of ditching the carbs on my GT750 project if it can...

I don't know about 2-stroke, but I believe Doc Hess did a Megasquirt to his wife's sportster

I don't see why not - assuming you can find a TB and injector setup that fits, and have all the required sensors. You would also have to ensure you have enough juice to run the ECU and possibly a fuel pump (not sure if Dr Hess used a pump or not).

Yes, it can. The guy you're thinking of is Andy Whittle; he favors using mass air flow sensors on 2 strokes as they don't get a very steady MAP signal.

I think water buffalo's use oil-injection like the rest of the GT line, meaning the carbs only handle gasoline. That should make a MS setup a little easier.

There's a link out there to a MegaSquirted RD350 or RZ350 or something.

I'll see if I can dig it up.

Found it!

First, look here:

Cool! Thanks!

I'll probably stick with the carbs just to get it running, but perhaps if the financial and time Gods smile upon me...

I'd never call it "useless"...

Not a problem, RX7's do it all the time.
